Answer: 
No, the fixture is non-dimming, but I would like to change my answer of January 17, 2014 because you may use a lower wattage bulb, 50 or 35 watts in this case. I used to be a lighting fixture salesman and had never heard of anything other than the bulb wattage matching the wattage rating of a high-pressure sodium (HPS) ballast, but since got the information from what a factory representative wrote in Read More
No, the fixture is non-dimming, but I would like to change my answer of January 17, 2014 because you may use a lower wattage bulb, 50 or 35 watts in this case. I used to be a lighting fixture salesman and had never heard of anything other than the bulb wattage matching the wattage rating of a high-pressure sodium (HPS) ballast, but since got the information from what a factory representative wrote in another Q & A. I also proved it at home and it works fine. I like this fixture because of its features, but do not always need as much light, such as where closer to the ground; now, I can reduce my operating costs. In addition, I expect that an under-rating bulb will last longer because it does not produce as much heat, the main reason for early end of bulb life. It remains true that the rated wattage of the ballast cannot be exceeded. Read Less

Answer: 
No, a dimmable, high-pressure sodium (HPS) lamp (bulb) has not yet been devised. For dimmer light, choose a lower-wattage fixture. Caution: A 50-watt lamp, for example, will not work in this 70-watt fixture because the wattage rating of the ballast is fixed at 70 watts and HPS lamp wattages must match ballast wattages.

Answer: 
No, it is not recommended that this fixture be attached with a motion sensor or a photo sensor as this could cause premature failure. Thanks for your question.

Answer: 
No, HPS (high-pressure sodium) lights are NOT yet combined with motion-sensing. Typical motion-sensing on-intervals are 1, 5, and 20 minutes; however, 1 and 5 minutes are within the startup or cool-down periods of an HPS lamp, which is a machine in the sense that it has moving parts. An HPS lamp DOES recover well from momentary power outages and voltage drops, so would seem to be adaptable to fast Read More
No, HPS (high-pressure sodium) lights are NOT yet combined with motion-sensing. Typical motion-sensing on-intervals are 1, 5, and 20 minutes; however, 1 and 5 minutes are within the startup or cool-down periods of an HPS lamp, which is a machine in the sense that it has moving parts. An HPS lamp DOES recover well from momentary power outages and voltage drops, so would seem to be adaptable to fast switching, but once off and cooled to a certain point, they will not re-ignite until cooled 10-20 minutes. Then, too, an HPS lamp reaching end-of-life will not recover immediately from power outages or voltage drops until a complete cool-down. Motion-sensing switches are designed for instant-on light sources: incandescent, halogen, L.E.D. and fluorescent. Only recently, a photocell timer was developed to work with fluorescent lights; until then, you could rule out any type of lighting which required a ballast as a possible candidate for photocell timers or motion-sensing. One reason for motion-sensing is to offset the high operating costs of other high-wattage lighting, incandescent or halogen; however, the operating cost of HPS is low, as the most efficient lighting, with the possible exception of L.E.D. L.E.D. lights, though, are only just being developed at higher light ouputs and high prices will not decline until such lights are brought into mass production. In other words, an HPS light might as well be left on dusk-to-dawn, as designed, until the next generation of outdoor lighting. Until recently, Home Depot carried a model of subject 70-watt fixture with a built-in photocell; they are still availabe elsewhere or subject fixture can be wired in combination with a separate photocell. The operating cost of this fixture per night is roughly equal to the cost of a K-wh of electricity, the basic unit for which we are charged on a utility bill. Read Less

Answer: 
Home Depot carries replacement lamp Philips 70-Watt BD17 Ceramalux™ High Pressure Sodium HID Light Bulb, Model # 140913. Closest to a part number, the lamp is known by Philips as C70S62/M, their Ordering Code, where C = Ceramalux, M = medium base and 70 is wattage. No matter what brand, S62 refers to the size and shape of the glass bulb, known in the industry as the envelope. A similar naming convention Read More
Home Depot carries replacement lamp Philips 70-Watt BD17 Ceramalux™ High Pressure Sodium HID Light Bulb, Model # 140913. Closest to a part number, the lamp is known by Philips as C70S62/M, their Ordering Code, where C = Ceramalux, M = medium base and 70 is wattage. No matter what brand, S62 refers to the size and shape of the glass bulb, known in the industry as the envelope. A similar naming convention is used for other brands, but they would have a different prefix because Ceramalux is a Philips registered trademark (™). This replacement lamp should not be confused with Philips 70-Watt ED23.5, which has a mogul base, a commercial size that is larger than a standard, "medium," Edison base; in other words, a mogul base is too large to screw into this fixture socket. Different numbers may appear on an original equipment lamp because they are usually generic bulbs made in China, which typically are rated to last an average 10,000 hours. This Philips replacement lamp is made in USA and rated to last 24,000 hours [industry-wide American standard] or about 6.58 years, based on a year-around average usage of 10 hours darkness per night; some American lamps may last 10 years or more, as in reviews. To get the exact average number of hours darkness in your latitude, check the times for sunset the night before the first day of spring or fall and sunrise the morning after, calculating the number of hours between [difference], as the earth will have traversed half way between the days of the shortest and longest numbers of hours of daylight. Some descriptions may estimate yearly operating cost, using a certain cost per Kwh [kilowatt-hour] and based on usage of 3 hours per day, which is not realistic dusk-to-dawn use, nor is estimated lamp life in double-digit years, based on such fictitious usage. Monitor an HPS bulb as it approaches life expectancy when it will go off when it should be on, then cycle back on. As it ages at end of life, it will cycle off and back on more and more frequently until it finally cycles off as soon as it reaches full brilliance, the back on after it cools and re-ignites [an HPS bulb is a machine with moving parts]. Do not wait to replace because the unnecessary cycling shortens the life of the ballast. This cycling is variously referred to in reviews as blinking, flickering, etc. If this behavior occurs when new, the fixture's photocell is receiving too much light upon full brilliance and thinks it is dawn; too much light may be reflected from a light-colored soffit, fascia, gutter, etc. requiring a blinder on the photocell if nothing else is changed.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good lighting It lights up 80% of my backyard. Def happy with my purchase. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product that matches our other landscape lighting units. Unfortunately it is probably discontinued. Could not find the product in my local Home Depot as it is apparently discontinued. Since I had other units of the same type, I ordered it on line. Good price and delivery. This unit functions like the others I have. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for MY Backyard We we're looking for a light to replace the original light we had in our backyard. (We have a pretty big backyard). The original light covered the entire backyard. This light fixture is smaller then the replacement. . We we're concerned about the color of the bulb (Amber). The original light was a white light. I called the company to see if the bulb could be replaced with a white lighting bulb but no luck. Finally had a chance to test the light out for a party. The light not only covered the majority of our backyard. It seemed to get brighter the longer it was on. It's not the best looking house light out there. But we were looking for function not fashion. September 1, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pour light quality Terrible light output. Don't waste your money, a flood light works better January 19, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bulb didn't last a year..So much for saving money Pretty much sums it up in the title. Started cycling on and off about every 4 min. Not sure how replacing a bulb that costs $22 at home depot is going to save me any money in the long run with this light that only uses 70 watts but puts out like 500 watts or more of incandescent light. They're supposed to last like 5-8 years. That's why their so expensive, since you don't have to buy the bulb once a year. October 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A solid performer for many years. I've used it to uplight large oak trees. Gives a nice amber glow, to the leaf canopy. I mount these to an exterior grade metal box, anchored to the ground with conduit. Use stainless steel screws, for the box cover. Use water proof wire nuts. October 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent quality sodium flood Solid metal construction, should last for many years. I have purchased two Livonia sodium lights, one with photocell for "dusk-to-dawn" operation and have been very pleased with the quality and cost/value ratio. Surprisingly heavy; makes installs a bit harder. February 11, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best buy watt per lumen Gives smooth vintage golden color. Easy for eyes. Used for house and backyard. love aluminium casing and full flat glass that should last lifetime. March 16, 2013
